Fish, potatoes, coleslaw and brownies are on the menu for an upcoming fundraiser.
The third annual FarmHouse Fish Fry is Friday at the FarmHouse Fraternity.
Fraternity members will run the operation from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Ticket holders can eat as much fish as they want during that time.
Not only is FarmHouse feeding the masses, but the money raised will go to a good cause.
Paul Subart, a FarmHouse member, said the fish fry is benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Last year, the benefit raised over $2,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
“We are hoping for around $2,500 this year,” Subart said.
Pollock is on the menu, and it will be served with baked potatoes, coleslaw and brownies.
Fundraising and service is a tenant in the FarmHouse code.
“Raising money for nonprofits is important to us because we believe it is important to give back to the community,” Jacob Lardy, a FarmHouse member, said. “The ‘S’ in FarmHouse stands for service, and this fish fry is just one way where we serve others.”
The fundraising aspect is not the only positive of the gathering, Subart said.
“We do this because it is for a great cause for the (society), and it also helps bring people together,” Subart said.
Lardy said he agrees.
“My favorite part would be seeing people show up and having a good time,” he said. “Seeing people have a good time and hearing compliments afterwards always puts a smile on my face.”
FarmHouse Fraternity members do all the cooking amongst themselves. They have partnered up with “Walleye on a Stick” for the annual use of the fryers.
The “Walleye on a Stick” is a popular eatery at the Minnesota State Fair.
FarmHouse Fraternity is located at 1144 College St. N.
Tickets can be purchased for $10 at the door or from a FarmHouse member.
